Summary:

Solid as a rock

Faults:

Body has a fair bit of rust.

Driver's seat is worn.

General Comments:

This car has been worked hard by the previous owner at his country farm, used for towing a huge trailer with firewood, sand and other building materials, but despite this, it still runs great.

Everything on the car works, including the heater.

Has plenty of power on the road, even on steep hills.

Has a bit of turbo lag when shifted into the 3rd.

Has heaps of load space with rear seat folded down.

My 4 year old son loves this truck.
